Andrew McCarthy: Trump impeachment inquiry obstructed by Democrats’ ‘whistleblower’ secrecy charade
President Trump calls out ‘fake whistleblower’
White House aides insist that Ukraine whistleblower should be questioned; chief White House correspondent John Roberts reports.
Congressional Democrats are obstructing the impeachment inquiry.
You heard that right. It has become rote for House Intelligence Committee Chairman Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., and his fellow Democrats to chide the Trump administration for blocking testimony from White House staffers and the president’s private lawyer, Rudy Giuliani. Yet, those witnesses actually have confidentiality privileges that are well settled in federal law, shielding communications between the chief executive and his top advisers, and between attorney and client, from disclosure.
When a person asserts a privilege recognized by law, we don’t call that obstruction. We call it the law in action.
